    Shit, this is awful news. Condolences to the family. I've been here since the very beginning; I never met the man, being so far away, but we got close once. I was just thinking of giving it another shot. RIP my friend.

    I'm so, so, sorry for your loss.
    My heart goes out to you and your family at this terrible time.

    I feel so guilty that real-world stuff at this end ate in to My time so much that i hadnt visited the JD in AGES, ,and when I did I only answered one msg and didn't get as far as the main forum, so didn't even know he was unwell.

    I used to send Ron English tea bags and once, a mini Boba Fett helmet for his desk, and the various items of JD swag he sent me over the years, especially patches and t-shirts, I'll now treasure forever.

    We'd talked many times about my hopping across the pond to visit, and I'm just gutted that I'll now never get to meet him.
    This kinda thing just hammers home the fact that we all really should "SEIZE THE DAY".

    Please pass on my condolences, love and best wishes to all your family, and I hope that knowing how much WE all loved him will offer you all some small comfort at this dreadful time.

    I'm just "in bits" right now. :-(

    Haven't been here in a long time, but have greatest respect for the forum and its members - and I know why JD has always had en excellent reputation: the man at the top. Ron was known and respected in more places than just JD, and his leadership is why. He will be missed more than most anyone can express. My most profound sympathies and condolences upon this sad occasion. Prayers sent.
